  • Introduction
    • Abstract: In 2013, China's president Xi Jinping announced an initiative that would set the course for much of China's foreign policy toward its Eurasian neighbors. Consisting of two parts—an overland "belt" connecting China with Central Asia, Russia, South Asia, and Europe and a maritime "road" linking Chinese ports with those in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe—the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) envisions a vast network of railways, highways, ports, pipelines, and communication infrastructure spanning the Eurasian continent and facilitating trade, investment, and people-to-people exchange (see Figure 1). In 2015, Beijing announced a plan to develop six economic corridors to advance this ... Read More

  • The Belt and Road Initiative: China's New Grand Strategy'
    • Abstract: In 2013, Chinese president Xi Jinping unveiled major components of what has since become known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). During an address to Nazarbayev University in the Kazakh capital, Astana, on September 7, Xi announced China's desire to "jointly build an 'economic belt' along the Silk Road" with Central Asian partners to "deepen cooperation and expand development in the Euro-Asia region."1 A month later, in an address to Indonesia's parliament, China's president encouraged Southeast Asian states to work with China to develop the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. Subsequently, China has put more "meat" on the bones of such aspirational statements through the identification of six core "economic ... Read More

  • First Movement: Pakistan and the Belt and Road Initiative
    • Abstract: The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has been billed as the "flagship project" of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), constituting the most expansive package of Chinese investments to be set in motion under its auspices to date.1 The headline numbers cited by the Pakistani government—$46 billion after CPEC's launch in 2015, rising to $51 billion after the agreement of additional projects in September 2016—may err on the high side, but by late 2016 even the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs' more conservative estimates of activities moving forward on the ground already totaled $14 billion.2 The scale and nature of CPEC, incorporating energy projects, rail and road connections, infrastructure development ...

  • India's Response to China's Belt and Road Initiative: A Policy in Motion
    • Abstract: A sense of aloofness and wariness, perhaps even deflection, initially characterized India's official response to China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). But as BRI has progressed to the point where New Delhi can no longer afford to ignore it, public comments have underscored several reservations and contentions. The first such pronouncement was made by the Indian foreign secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar in 2015:Where we are concerned, this is a national Chinese initiative. The Chinese devised it, created a blueprint. It wasn't an international initiative they discussed with the world, with countries that are interested or affected by it.…A national initiative is devised with national interests, it is not ...

  • The Evolution of Russia's Views on the Belt and Road Initiative
    • Abstract: The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), announced by Xi Jinping in 2013 and comprising both the Silk Road Economic Belt and the Maritime Silk Road, has provoked admiration for China's growing economic power but also reluctance to endorse it. In Russia, the Kremlin at first saw the initiative as confirmation of an emerging rivalry with China in the post-Soviet space, especially an attempt to pull the five Central Asian republics away from its sphere of influence.1 BRI was also perceived as a challenge to Russia's Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), to date the main economic integration structure in the Eurasian space, which has opened up a borderless free market among its member states (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan ...

  • Afghanistan and the Belt and Road Initiative: Hope, Scope, and Challenges
    • Abstract: In September and October 2013, Chinese president Xi Jinping visited Central Asia and Southeast Asia, where he announced an initiative to jointly build the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. From the Chinese perspective, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is an ambitious economic vision aimed at "cooperation among the countries along the Belt and Road" whereby they "work in concert and move towards the objectives of mutual benefit and common security."1 The BRI vision document emphasizes the great potential and space for cooperation among regional countries by promoting policy coordination and facilitating connectivity, unimpeded trade, financial integration, and people-to-people bonds. ...

  • China's Silk Road and Kazakhstan's Bright Path: Linking Dreams of
           Prosperity
    • Abstract: In 2013, President Xi Jinping announced China's Silk Road Economic Belt—the land-based component of the Belt and Road Initiative—during his visit to Astana. The choice of the venue did not seem accidental. Kazakhstan had already become a prime partner for China in Eurasia, with various connecting infrastructure projects completed or underway and with bilateral cooperation diversifying and blooming. The announced Silk Road Economic Belt Initiative promises better continental and intraregional connectivity and can only add wind into the sails of China-Kazakhstan cooperation.This essay will give a brief overview of energy and transportation infrastructure already connecting China and Kazakhstan to show that ...

  • China's Belt and Road Initiative and Its Implications for Southeast Asia
    • Abstract: During state visits to Kazakhstan and Indonesia in 2013, Xi Jinping announced the land-based Silk Road Economic Belt and the sea-based 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, respectively. Shortly after that, these two initiatives were combined to form one unified concept, known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). This grand initiative, comprising various routes by sea and land, is intended to connect China with Southeast and South Asia, Central Asia, Pacific Oceania, Africa, and Europe. BRI is centered on both soft and hard infrastructure connectivity, aiming to forge an integrated and extensive network of regional infrastructure with China at its hub.BRI has gradually emerged as a top Chinese national strategy. Given ... Read More

  • A Renaissance or a Revolution'
    • Abstract: During the past half century, the return of Japan to great-power politics has been predicted many times—wrongly. Especially in the 1970s, as Japan's industrial and financial power grew, many foreign observers expected the country to soon become a great military power. Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai feared that Japan was on the verge of resuming a militarist course. Herman Kahn, the preeminent futurist and founder of the Hudson Institute, concluded in his book The Emerging Japanese Superstate (1970) that the "Japanese will almost inevitably feel that Japan has the right and duty to achieve full superpower status and that this means possessing a substantial nuclear establishment."1 The year before his election as ...

  • Japanese Security Policy—An Uncertain Future after Abe
    • Abstract: Andrew Oros's recent book Japan's Security Renaissance: New Policies and Politics for the Twenty-First Century is a much-needed update on the recent changes in Japanese security policy. Described by Oros as addressing the period "from Abe to Abe," the book focuses on the policy evolution and institutional adjustments that have accompanied the changes in Japan's national security policymaking between 2006 and 2016. By providing detailed accounts of both domestic political shifts within Japan and external security developments, Japan's Security Renaissance analyzes the small and incremental steps that have cumulatively resulted in substantial changes in Japan's national security policymaking.The book divides the ...

This informative monograph gives the reader a window into current policy debates and the strategic vision for Japan's future.Oros focuses in particular on the period from 2006 to 2012, a time when two power transitions helped generate what he describes as "a broad consensus on Japan's appropriate military security policies and ...

  • Renaissance'
    • Abstract: "In the area of military security, 'Japan is back.'" So begins Japan's Security Renaissance, Andrew L. Oros's impressively detailed and nuanced account of Japan's post–Cold War security. It is a welcome, scholarly work. I have admired the author's academic achievements for well over a decade and do not disagree with many, if any, of the facts he lays out. His presentation is so detailed that a number of the findings were beyond my knowledge, and I learned a lot by reading this book.I am a former U.S. naval officer who sailed with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) from 1963 to 1978 and who analyzed Japan's status as a U.S. military ally from 1979 to 1988 from an American perspective in the Office of the ...

  • Author's Response: Next Steps in Japan's "Security Renaissance"'
    • Abstract: The range of interpretation expressed in this book review roundtable about Japan's recent security policy innovation mirrors other responses I have received since Japan's Security Renaissance was released earlier this year. Scholars and policy analysts from countries almost ranging from A to Z (Australia to Vietnam) have shared reactions with me, particularly to my core framing of the past decade as something importantly new for Japan, a "security renaissance." Both the book and the phenomenon itself have generated great interest worldwide, and a wide array of reactions both negative and positive. Some readers object to what they see as the implication that prior to this renaissance something was wrong with Japan: ... Read More

  • Policy by Other Means: Collective Self-Defense and the Politics of Japan's
           Postwar Constitutional Reinterpretations
    • Abstract: This article analyzes Japan's landmark cabinet decision reinterpreting the constitution to allow the limited exercise of collective self-defense (CSD) in both a historical and a contemporary context and assesses its implications for the conditions under which Japan may use military force.In July 2014, a historic cabinet decision reinterpreted Article 9 of Japan's 1947 constitution to allow the use of force to aid an ally under attack, overturning 60 years of authoritative constitutional interpretations categorically prohibiting Japan's exercise of CSD. The decision was followed by a revision of the U.S.-Japan Defense Guidelines and landmark legislation intended to transform Japan's security policy. Yet the change ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Considerable uncertainty has surrounded the Trump administration's priorities in Asia. While U.S. cabinet officials have at times sought to reassure the region that the United States intends to preserve its commitment to the post–World War II international system, other comments and actions by the administration have indicated an inward turn that suggests less active U.S. engagement. These mixed signals have left regional allies, partners, and other states wondering what the future holds for their relationships with the United States.A roundtable discussion in the January 2017 issue of Asia Policy, "Assessing U.S.-Asia Relations in a Time of Transition," presented mainly American perspectives on the major issues ...

  • China-U.S. Relations during the Trump Administration: Mixed Signals,
           Increased Risks
    • Abstract: Whether you hold a crystal ball passed down from Thucydides or are trained in the offensive realist tradition, your predictions about the future of China-U.S. relations will probably be the same: the two great powers are destined for war.For those who are skeptical of historical analogies or the practical value of theoretical models, however, the Chinese leadership offers a dose of optimism. Beijing has consistently reassured the international community that it is firmly committed to peaceful development. Most importantly, Chinese president Xi Jinping in 2014 called on his American counterpart to jointly work toward a new model of major-country relations characterized by "non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual ...

  • Reaffirming U.S. Alliances in the Asia-Pacific: A Japanese Perspective
    • Abstract: From a Japanese perspective, the U.S. commitment to the Asia-Pacific under the Trump administration seems to be far more robust than many in the region worrisomely speculated during the presidential election campaign. Despite Donald Trump's tough words on U.S. alliances in Asia and Europe as a presidential candidate, the administration's approach in East Asia, centering on the alliances with Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK), has been positive and pragmatic, endorsing the importance of the hub-and-spoke network of bilateral arrangements between the United States and Asian partners.1 Visits to Asia by Secretary of Defense James Mattis in February and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in March, followed by Vice ...

  • Prospects for the U.S.-ROK Alliance: Returning to the Old Days or Marching
           to the Future'
    • Abstract: In the nine years after the inauguration of the Lee Myung-bak administration in February 2008, the consensus regarding the alliance between the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the United States was that it "couldn't be better." Yet with the inauguration of new administrations in both capitals, despite the reaffirmation of each side's commitment to the alliance, there are some concerns and anxieties over North Korea policy, the implications of China's rise for the regional security architecture, and alliance management. In general, the United States is concerned about the possibility that Moon Jae-in will revive Roh Moo-hyun's Sunshine Policy of engagement with North Korea as well as adopt a pro-Chinese orientation and ...

  • Taiwan in Trump's Perspective: A Bargaining Chip'
    • Abstract: Many countries in Asia have experienced significant political transitions in the last couple of years. In Taiwan, Tsai Ing-wen won a landslide victory for the Democratic Progressive Party, Taiwan's independence-leaning party, in the January 2016 presidential election. In her inauguration speech, Tsai "vowed to preserve the status quo in relations with China, adding Beijing must respect Taiwan's democracy and both sides must ensure there are no provocations."1 However, the status quo has in fact undergone a sea change since Tsai was sworn in as president—cross-strait relations have sharply cooled with the cessation of official communication channels.Besieged by Taiwan's diplomatic isolation and domestically fierce ...

  • Collision Rather Than Collusion: Issues in Russian-U.S. Relations
    • Abstract: The election of Donald Trump was welcomed in Moscow in November 2016 as a chance to at least temper the adversity that had beset Russia-U.S. relations since 2014, when President Vladimir Putin used military force to seize control of Crimea and provided support to the rebels in Ukraine's Donbas region. Above all, the Republican victory suddenly relieved Russian leaders of the prospect of continued Democratic control over the White House, which by fall 2016 they had come to view as inevitable. Hillary Clinton, a staunch supporter of the post–Maidan revolution leadership in Kiev and an advocate of a no-fly zone in Syria and possibly U.S. intervention there, was regarded as simply hostile toward Moscow. Trump, by ... Read More

  • U.S.-India Relations under President Trump: Promise and Peril
    • Abstract: The structural conditions in Asia are ripe for closer U.S.-India strategic relations. China's rise and aggressive behavior, coupled with the massive imbalance of power between China and India, leaves India with little choice but to attempt to balance China. Moreover, its choice of partners is limited. India could attempt to create a regional balance by banding together with the many other Asian states that share its concerns about China, but this promises to be difficult and may not work. The United States' dominance over Asia, an essential component of its global role, is also under threat from China. Though the United States can probably still counter China by itself, it would be a lot easier to do this in ... Read More

  • A Marriage Estranged: The Strategic Disconnect between Pakistan and the
           United States
    • Abstract: Like a bad marriage that holds together only because the couple deems divorce to be cost-prohibitive, the United States and Pakistan remain locked in a deeply distrustful relationship. Both sides regularly accuse the other of being an insincere partner and complain of being cheated. Yet Pakistan remains a major non-NATO ally, and the two states continue to seek ways to overcome their differences to fight terrorism.U.S.-Pakistan relations frayed considerably in the last eighteen months of the Obama administration. With President Donald Trump's entry into the mix, Pakistanis sensed an opportunity to work with an administration that seems to have no preconceived South Asia policy. But progress will not be easy. The ... Read More

  • U.S.–Southeast Asia Relations under the Trump Administration
    • Abstract: The election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States has occasioned intense discussion over the likely shape of his administration's foreign policy toward Southeast Asia. Two broad views have emerged in this regard. The first contends that the political neophyte will attempt to make good on his campaign promises to reconsider U.S. commitments to friends and allies, and this will lead him to depart from prevailing policy toward East Asia and upend the order that has undergirded the region's prosperity and economic dynamism. A second view maintains that, after an initial period of bluster, good sense will prevail and policy toward Asia will fall back into a more familiar pattern as a result of ... Read More

  • Steering between Primacies: Challenges to the Australia-U.S. Alliance
    • Abstract: The Australia-U.S. alliance has experienced three straight decades of tightening and deepening, driven by a range of factors. The advent of the "unipolar moment" provided a strong incentive for Australia to make a sustained diplomatic effort to reinforce and renovate its alliance with the United States after the Cold War, rather than to attenuate it as Thailand and the Philippines did. The tech-driven surge in the U.S. economy, coupled with the revolution in military affairs, convinced successive Australian governments that the United States was an indispensable security partner for the foreseeable future.Regional and global security dynamics further drove a convergence in strategic interests. Post-Tiananmen China ... Read More

  • Beyond Imposing Costs: Recalibrating U.S. Strategy in the South China Sea
    • Abstract: This essay assesses how U.S. strategy in the South China Sea can be optimized to retain military superiority while addressing the risk of instability resulting from a clash with China.U.S. policy in the South China Sea has failed to fully address two problems: China's continuing buildup of military and paramilitary power in the region, and the risk of an incident at sea escalating into major conflict. The main alternative to current policy focuses on imposing political, economic, and military costs on China to deter further militarization of the region. However, this approach risks spoiling cooperation on risk-reduction measures while pushing Beijing toward even greater regional militarization. Instead of a ... Read More
